Bistro Menu cometh 1/1/2016

Happy New Year!! Our popular Sunday Bistro Menu (and even more popular, get-’em-while-they-last Sunday $1 oysters) will begin on Sunday January 10th. Join us for an evening of casual fare. We also serve the regular menu that night, so Sundays are perfect for fancy dining, too.  See you on Sunday night! Menu can also be found at if you need to cut and paste.

Deck Season has Ended

Well, it’s been a great summer on the deck. But all good things must come to an end! The deck is now closed for the season. For those who need a bit more out-door time, we’ll leave the chairs out for a while — so you can feel free to take your drink out there!

Thanks for all your support over the summer. Join us soon in the dining room, and we’ll keep you posted on the return of the Sunday Bistro menu.

Well, Fall is officially upon us! We will keep the patio open for lunch Weds-Saturday until Columbus Day Weekend.
Dinner will only be served out there Friday and Saturday nights….
Drinks always available on Weds, Thurs, and Sunday — just see us inside to order and we’ll bring them out to you.

Hermit Thrush Brewery Dinner

We’ve loved getting to know the guys from Hermit Thrush, and have been featuring one of their beers on tap for the last few months. We’ve finally paired up to do a full-on dinner featuring some of the brews (now available in cans!) and hope you’ll be able to join us.
